California Supreme Court announced that it will give its opinion Thursday.
According to Los Angeles Times, if the court rules against the initiative backers, then a federal appeals court is more likely to rule that ProtectMarriage.com, the sponsor of Proposition 8, also lacks standing under federal law.
Gay rights groups want the state high court to deny standing to the initiative's sponsors. That could avoid a constitutional showdown on Proposition 8 that gays might lose before the U.S. Supreme Court.
But this will be only an opinion, the decision will be taken by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
One can only hope that then, the judges of the Court of Appeal, who had requested the Supreme Court's opinion, follows it if, of course, it is positive for us.
